Always nice to see new stuff comming out still. But question. Does the 10% increase come from just the adjustability? Just thinking that the zok bars are 6mm wall thickness to the 4.7mm of your bars. But since the increase in size of yours over the zok bars, I would think the bars by themselves would be very similar IF the adjustability wasnt there?

Stiffness is achieved by more than just diameter and wall thickness, length, material and attachment point location also factor in.  On the inner adjustment point the stiffness is 10% stiffer than the Z0K bars, the outer points are at the ZoK stiffness, you are essentially getting 2 sets of bars in one!

Do you mean the inner most are 10% stiffer than Z0K and the outer most attachment points are equal to the Z0K? So the center hole would be ~5% stiffer than the Z0K?

Can I get them uncoated?

Is 11/1 your pre-buy deadline or do you have another date in mind?  Or just plan on setting up the pre-buy for the first set quantity?

Also interested in the answer to this question, and why 10% adjustment?  Was that just the most the stock non-adjustable endlinks allow?

Yes, that is what I meant, sorry I went back and corrected my typo...

Yes we can send a set uncoated, same price as we have a special deal set up with our coater for these bars.

The group buy pre-order is to get the first set into production.  After the 11/1 date these will go up in price and swill be sold at $400.00 for the set.

Any stiffer just wasn't needed, we have tested our sway bar design on the track for the last year or so and experimented with ALL the different sway bars out there and this was the best offering we came up with, they really work well.

Also interested in the answer to this question, and why 10% adjustment?  Was that just the most the stock non-adjustable endlinks allow?

What is the bushing material?

I swapped out to the polyurethane bushings years ago, and LOVED the difference for autocross.  Granted, I have the entire suspension set (control arms and bars) installed, but really don't want to go back to rubber and loose any of the crispness I have gained in steering.

I'm very interested in these.  I would then have a set of Z0K bars to sell. :)

Apparently I completely missed that the several times I read your post... because I see it's there now.  Sorry for asking the redundant question.

It replaces the factory sway bar.  The Pro-Beam is something completely different.

Sooo... that would be a yes? lol But would these bars be available seperately? If anything I would probably be interested in just the rear to tame some of the understeer when I do get it.
